DAEDLUS3.WAD:

This .WAD file is the third installment of the "daedalus" series, a replacement for levels 5 and 6. They are, appropriately enough, considerably harder and more complex than any of the previous levels. If you liked the first four levels, you should love these...

Level Descriptions: -Level 05, "The Bastion" As you materialize on a teleport pad in a small brick room, the first thing to assault your senses is the putrid smell of rotting flesh. Turning around, you see that the source of this smell -- a dismembered Archvile chained to the wall. Not a good sign... But where the hell ARE you? Glancing up through the skylight (we'll pretend this is Heretic) you see that you have been transported deeper into the mountain range. The exact nature of this complex eludes you, however -- it must have been mostly constructed by the demonic invaders.

In this level, your greatest challenge is the Bastion itself -- two large gates that are virtually crawling with enemies. If you can pass these, you can escape into the dark tunnels beyond. Don't be tempted to just run through this last section of the level, unless you're playing it on a really low difficulty level -- on most levels, your only chance is a series of "hit and run" attacks.

-Level 06, "Research Labs" You stumble into the darkness of the underground passage, bloodstained and weary from your last battle. Pausing for a moment to catch your breath, you look around. The first thing that becomes clear to you is that these are not natural tunnels. The walls here are metallic, not earthen, and the now-familiar smell of seeping radioactive ooze permeates the area.

You recall some rumours, back before the invasion, that there were hidden UAC research facilities in this part of the mountain range -- soon enough, you'll find out that those rumours were true. As for the specific type of research involved... well, you'll find THAT out soon enough, too.

The darkness ahead fills you with an inexplicable dread, but you really only have two choices: strike ahead into the unknown depths, or turn back and allow the rest of your race to be butchered...

Played all 6 levels @ UV. Typical 1994-style, with all its design flaws. Map layout, architecture, monster placements and gameplay are as you can expect: rectangular, little texture use, overly dark areas, flash lightning, a shitload of hitscanners, and way too easy @ UV. Overall maybe not too bad, but nothing special, and nothing new according to 2014 standards. Presumably 4/5 in 1995, but it's 2014, so 3/5 for the efford. Give it a try if you like to play easy old-style maps.

If you want to go back to 1994, here you go; these kinds of maps are not my taste though. 3/5 for effort

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
